1 Winter Song Turnover 1 Yd. of Moda Bella Solid White
BindingYep! I used1Turnover to make all3 of these projects! Now how cool is that.
Cut your turnovers in half as shown
Cut your white fabric into 4 1/2 ” strips
Cut your strips into 4 1/2″ squares.
You will need 72 – 4 1/2″ squares (for all three projects)
Cut in half diagonally To help speed things up while I was sewing,
I put a white triangle with a print triangle ready to sew.
Now start sewing.
Queen Elna and I sped right along.
Sew the longest side of the triangle,
and don’t worry if the white piece is a little bigger
than your print piece. It’ll be fine, you’ll see…
Iron the triangles to make a square
I ironed my seam towards the print side.
Now trim/square up your blocks to 3 3/4″
You’ll have plenty of room to trim and make a perfect square block. for some reason I felt the need to take a picture
of all the scraps. Aren’t they pretty.
Lay out your blocks for your pillow
4 across and 4 down
Lay out your blocks for your Table Topper
10 across and 10 down.
Do the same thing for your Table Runner
9 across and 3 down.
Sew your blocks together to form rows.
Sew your rows together
I love using a blue Mark-B-Gone pen and my quilt ruler to mark
my quilting lines. So very cool.
For the pillow I quilted the top to a layer of batting first.
To make the pillow cover, Kim has a great set of instructions HERE for making a pillow“envelope”. My pillow comes out at 12-13″ square. Kim’s is for a 16″ square pillow,so you’ll need to do a little adjusting. I make all my pillow covers with the envelopestyle back.
Bat, Back, Quilt and Bind your Table Topper and Table Runneras desired. And pat yourself on the back for getting a Christmasproject done way early! What a good feeling. Yes?
